Emergency Travel Certificate PDF Print
Emergency Travel Certificate (ETC) is issued to Nigerians whose passports have expired or who legitimately lose their passports while abroad on visits and resident Nigerians abroad, to enable them return to Nigeria. It can also be issued to new born babies of Nigerian origin born abroad but requiring a document to return to Nigeria. ETC is usually issued for a one-way journey to Nigeria only and must be surrendered to the Immigration authorities at the port of entry. Please note that this document cannot serve as a substitute to an e-passport. An ETC cannot be issued to Nigerians with an expired residence permit wishing to return to Nigeria nor can it be used to travel to another country other than Nigeria.
